An Award and a Fab Giveaway!

All awards are special and great fun to give. The Renee Award is relatively new and was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee, an incredibly lady who in the face f a frightening life battle is tackling each new day with great spirit and courage. Please check out the blogs of these three creative women.

I have to thank Sue of Barton Originals for passing this award on to me - thanks, Sue!

Here is what Bella says of the award:
"This is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acords..."

In accepting this award, my task is to now pass it on to eight other deserving bloggers who I feel fulfill the same qualities as the little acorn and the tall sturdy oak who is constantly giving back.

It is, of course incredibly difficult to come up with only eight! All of the bloggers with whom I'm a regular reader and enthusiastic fan should be nominated. But, as I can only nominate 8, here goes, in no particular order ...

Anne at elMilagro Studios
Bernadette at Artifacts
Valarie at Glittery Daze and Nights

These are only eight of the many bloggers on my list that make my day more enjoyable, more insightful, more informed - and more filled with beautiful images of art and vintage treasures. If you aren't familiar with their blogs, be sure to give them a visit. Some make art, some make poetry, some make sense - but they all make life more beautiful.

And, all of you who are listed, please take the (lovely!) button above and add it to your blog and pass it on to eight of your favorite bloggers who 'give back!'

And here is a wonderful give-away from the Baroness Bijoutery, who makes absolutely enchanting creations! Her fanciful and whimsical faeries are a real treat! Click on the mermaid to enter her contest!
My favorite is her Magical Forest Faery ... which one is yours?! much writing and linking!...doing all that linking takes some time! I must stop this post and start working on my Pink Saturday post. Geesh. If I spent this much time at a real job, I'd be driving a much finer car than I am!

Hope you are either just finished or getting ready to make something that will excite you!
